Meet Our Volunteer of the Month!

Meet Our Volunteer of the Month!!
This is Clint - he is one of the folks I can call when there is a problem with a job and he leaps to the rescue! I know I can count on him and he is a wonderful part of our team. Here is what he has to say about his volunteer life:
"I volunteer because it makes me feel good. I love Missoula's sense of community and wanted to do my part to help encourage that. Volunteering to me isn't about huge events and massive sums of money. It's about going over to a neighbors house, helping them for a few minutes, and maybe having a conversation for a bit. It's really that simple......"
It really is. Thanks Clint!
